As expected, NBC Sports dominated the 30th Annual Sports Emmy awards with their coverage of the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics NBC took home five Emmy's, HBO took eight, and CBS Sports received 5.

But there were a couple of pleasant surprises as FSN's Sports Science took home two Emmy's.

Here are the winners from the 30th Annual Sports Emmy Awards given out on April 27, 2009.
